I recently added three designs to CafePress in the Logos* category. Tee shirts and sweatshirts for men and women, buttons, stickers, bags, wall art, and housewares are available in all three designs. Two are quotations from Frederich Nietzche, the German existential philosopher, and one is from Kipling, British warrior/poet:
Battle not with monsters,
Lest you become a monster.
If you gaze into the abyss,
The abyss gazes also into you.
The Nietzche quotes seem particularly apt at this time, given our current War on Terror and War on Drugs: do these wars really protect us, or merely deprive us of our liberties and lower us to the level of those we are fighting? Meanwhile, we are discouraged by schools, the media, religion, and law enforcement from asking pesky questions. Yet only by questioning can we arrive at the truth.
I challenge you to use these products to question the status quo and encourage others to do the same.
*Logos is the Greek word for Word; it’s also a description of many of these designs, which look like logos.
